What exactlly are the dangers of smoking cigars *without* inhaling? I know smoking of any kind is bad, so please don't talk that line. I'm interested in only hearing opinions on whether smoking cigars without inhaling is just as dangerous as smoking in general. My gut feeling tells me that it's not as good as being smoke free, but since no smoke goes down your lungs, you are unlikely to be in danger of lung cancer and the likes. Has this been looked at by any reputable academic/institute? Your thoughts please. Also how often do you smoke?
